The Star Wars movie franchise is available on Digital HD for the first time today and R2D2 promoted the release on @midnight yesterday. Strange choice (although not really because their audience is the same as Star Wars’), but it works because they put words in his mouth that no one else would ever dare. And yes they went there with a joke about Hans Solo crashing into a golf course. To see if the comedians went even further than that, you can just have to watch.
The only negative, is Chris Hadwick didn’t offer any suggestions. What in beep and boop is that all about?
Comedy Central has yet to make it official, but The New York Times is reporting that Trevor Noah will replace Jon Stewart as the host of The Daily Show later this year.
Are you going, “Who is he?” The South African comedian made his debut on the show back in December. Since then he has made only 2 more appearances. You might say, that Comedy Central is taking a huge risk by hiring an unknown to take the job. Actually, you can totally say it. You know, it is going to piss off the veterans who have worked on the show for years. I am sure even Larry Wilmore is going, WTF? He gets the second hour and this newbie gets the prime show. Can’t blame him if he was pissed about it.
While his newness can be an issue for fans, I think the bigger problem is going to come as soon as he starts. A big emphasis of The Daily Show is American Politics. That means he is going to have to start learning everything he can in the next few months or he will be screwed when he starts because, at that time, we are a year away from picking a new President of the United States. I’ve lived here my whole life, and I still have no clue what goes on during the election. So he has work cut out for him.
And so does Comedy Central. Hopefully they will do a better job than CBS did with James Corden when it comes to getting the word out about the virtually unknown host.
What do you think of the pick?
Comedy Central announced today who is going to Roast Justin Bieber on March 30th and it is an all-star lineup! They got Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, Shaquille O’Neal, Martha Stewart, Hannibal Buress, Chris D’Elia, Natasha Leggero and Jeffrey Ross. Sadly though for Justin, Seth Rogen is not on the list. Which I think makes it even better.
You know, the Domestic Goddess is going to kill it, as will Shaq. Both of them have a really good sense of humor. Plus, the dais should be afraid of them because she did time and he is over 7′ tall. When it comes to the comedians, I can’t wait to see what the Beebs’ good friend D’Elia has to say about everyone. I’ve seen him at 2 events promoting Undateable and both times he had me busting a gut!
Comedy Central had me when they decided to Roast Beiber, then they gave me some whipped cream when they made Hart the RoastMaser and this dais is so the cherry on top of it all! March 30th can’t come soon enough!
Comedy Central thought it would be a sweet idea if they reunited Happy Gilmore stars, Bob Barker and Adam Sandler, for their for the annual benefit event, Night of Too Many Stars, and they were gravely mistaken. Even though it has been almost 20 years since their movie came out, the two of them still have a lot of hard feelings towards each other. The blood between them is so bad, that they each lost a few pints of it during the battle. Thankfully, they were in a hospital at the time, otherwise neither one of them would’ve made it.
To see what other brilliant gags Comedy Central has planned to raise money and awareness for Autism, tune into Night of Too Many Stars this Sunday at 9p.
Comedy Central released the first promo for their Roast of Justin Bieber and it eggcellent. I am not even eggaggerating.
They took one of his most infamous reported incidents and turned it around him. Remember when he allegedly egged his neighbor’s house? Well, instead of egging the singer’s house, they egged him. He actually took it like a man. Which hopefully he will do on March 30th. If he any has problems with how to do that, then he can just ask his RoasterMaster for some advice. You know, the star of Think Like a Man, Kevin Hart.
I don’t know about you, but I am really eggcited for this Roast!
Are you sitting down? First fans of Comedy Central’s news block lost Stephen Colbert to CBS and now they are losing Jon Stewart to retirement. The comedian announced his departure during tonight’s taping of The Daily Show according to Entertainment Weekly. What he has planned, we will not know until we tune in. But we do know he will not be leaving until later this year. When, we don’t know, but we should just appreciate whatever time we have left with him until he is just yesterday’s news.
Here is Comedy Central‘s statement about it:
“For the better part of the last two decades, I have had the incredible honor and privilege of working with Jon Stewart. His comedic brilliance is second to none. Jon has been at the heart of Comedy Central, championing and nurturing the best talent in the industry, in front of and behind the camera. Through his unique voice and vision, The Daily Show has become a cultural touchstone for millions of fans and an unparalleled platform for political comedy that will endure for years to come. He is a comic genius, generous with his time and talent, and will always be a part of the Comedy Central family.”
So where will all those people who tuned in to get their news from him, get their updates on today’s news? Maybe they will switch the channel to watch a real newsman like Brian Williams. You know, if NBC fires Williams, then maybe they can get him to take over The Daily Show? Seriously, I wonder who they will get to replace him? Will John Oliver be able to get out of his HBO contract to take over? Will they go with someone outside the franchise? Will they get rid of the show? Hey wait, David Letterman will be out of a job in May? And Jay Leno has been out of work since last February? I am still liking Brian Williams best for the job. Who is your money on? Or do you need some time to soak in the news?

James Franco, Charlie Sheen, David Hasselhoff, William Shatner, Roseanne Barr, Bob Saget and Flavor Flav have all survived it, and soon we will find out if Justin Bieber can do the same. The singer is going to get his own Roast on Comedy Central, and you know he is going to cry like a Baby Baby when it is done.
The Beebs confirmed the news by Tweeting, “For years I have wanted Comedy Central to roast me. They said only if I provided them w/ more material so for a year now I have worked hard.” Boy, did he work hard at it. There are Calvin Klein ads, the arrests, the bleached blonde hair, his skateboarding fails, the time he peed in a bucket in a restaurant kitchen, the time he egged his neighbor’s house, his ability to walk into glass doors, his Selfies and so on.
As of now, the only thing Comedy Central confirms is that they are Roasting the Beebs. When it will be and who will be there is yet to be determined. I am hoping they get Undateable’s Chris D’Elia to be the Roastmaster, but since Ryan Seacrest broke the news I think he will get the honor. I hope they fill the dais with past teen idols like Rick Springfield, Donny Osmond, Leif Garret, David Cassidy, John Stamos, Joe and/or Nick Jonas and and Scott Baio to name a few. You need an older dame and Cloris Leachman has proven she is up for the task. If not, maybe they can get Selena Gomez or Kim Kardashian? Who do you want to Roast him?
ESPN added a new segment to SportsCenter called Awesome Video Segment and it looks a lot like Tosh.0‘s Web Redemption segment. Well Daniel Tosh didn’t take too kindly to them appearing have copied him, so he decided to do his own version of Sports Science. A segment I guess they have, I wouldn’t know because I don’t watch. But I would totally watch the Comedy Central one every time it airs.
So I think we can all agree that Daniel Tosh won this battle of words; but if ESPN was take him outside for a fight, they would totally destroy his scrawny a$$. Kind of like in school when the nerds (not that Tosh is one) would win in the classroom and the jocks outside of it.
Jon Hamm was on @midnight the other night and he only did it because he loves the show and all things internet. You know what he loves most about the internet besides gay p0rn, he loves all the cats you can find on there. The Mad Man told Chris Harrison, “Dogs may be man’s best friend, but cats are clearly man’s best snuggle buddy.” Oh, to be a cat right about now.
Sorry, I don’t know what he said after that, so you will just have to watch.
BTW what is going on in his crotch area? Like a cat is drawn to a ball of yarn, I am drawn to his ba…
This coming Tuesday on Comedy Central at 10p, Daniel Tosh is going to do the unimaginable on Tosh.0. Daniel is going to air a family friendly episode. That’s right, there will be no puking, bodily injuries, strong language and little or no sexual dialogue or situations.
How he is going to be able to that because his show anything but PG-13, I don’t know. That is what is going to make it so very interesting. I have a feeling it will be like the G-Rated version of Cabin Fever that is a special feature on the DVD. The horror movie’s family version only lasts a few seconds, and I don’t know how Tosh will last longer than that. In other words, I think his clean version of the show will last as long as, I assume, he does in bed. You know wham, bam, tha…done!
Seriously though, I think this a brilliant stunt for the show. I know I will be watching, but then again I always am. Are you going to check it out?
Finally, I really hope that because Tosh.0 is going to be so very innocent that Brickleberry will be even raunchier to make up for it. Although, is that even possible?
